    Ignore the mounting bracket, a 10 inch aftermarket will drop in and fit like a glove, you will NOT be able to use screws, I just used some e6000 glue in a bead around the outside, it held for a year and when I replaced it for a second time (didn't like the first one I replaced it with) I had a bear of a time getting the glue up. Use e6000, it will seal perfectly and will not come loose or rattle. I highly recommend an Infinity reference series 10 inch subwoofer, they have excellent sensitivity and frequency range + don't break the budget at 60 bucks shipped. A line converter tied to the factory lines with a dummy load resistor coupled with an amp that can push about 200w RMS will make that infinity sub sing like you have never heard before.

    Re: DeVille 04 Base SubWoofer Replacement

    You wanted a sub that had dual 4 ohm voice coils, the stock amp needs a dual 4 ohm voice coil sub and the infinity 1062 is not only very affordable at 60 bucks shipped. The sound quality is superb with the 1062, dual 4 ohm voice coils for proper hookup and it has very high sensitivity which means it can get quite loud with very little power.
